Chia, Chocolate & Raspberry Breakfast Smoothie.

100g buckwheat
1tbsp lemon juice
100g raspberries
1 tbsp honey
1 banana
1 tbsp raw cacao powder
4 drops of vanilla essence with pods
pinch of chia seeds
pinch of cacao
pinch of shredded coconut
dark chocolate broken into chunks

Its been a little while since I have made a recipe as I have been busy getting my cookbook ready for publishing this Autumn, which is very exciting for me. This is a chocolate version of this recipe.

Place the buckwheat in a cup and cover with water and the lemon juice. Leave it to sit over night, then drain and set aside.

In a blender place your raspberries and honey, then blend until smooth and pour into a cup. Clean the blender, then add the buckwheat, banana, cacao powder, vanilla and blend well until smooth.

Pour 1/3rd into a glass, then pour in a little of the fruit blend. Add the buckwheat and blend again, do this in layers until full, use a spoon to make swirl patterns if desired. It will make two small glasses or one large one. Top with chia seeds, cacao powder, shredded coconut and dark chocolate chunks.
